Filter By Variable Captured From Input Box

Jul 17, 2007

I have a Workbook containing a list of records. I'd like to create some code to

1) Get the user to input their initials when the workbook opens, and capture the response
2) Clear any filters currently applied
3) Apply filters to a non-continous range of columns
4) Apply the input response as the criteria to one of the columns, and 'blanks' to another 2 columns

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Static varUser As String
'sets varUser variable as String & stores it
varUser = InputBox(Prompt:="Enter Intials (leave blank to view all)", Title:="Login")
'Activates input box to capture value
Dim ContractsSheet As Range
Set ContractsSheet = Worksheets("Contracts").Range("A1:AA999")
ContractsSheet.EntireRow.Hidden = False....................

Output Results Not Being Captured

Oct 9, 2009

I have built a model where I have various inputs and various outputs. I have managed to set up the model so that whenever i hit the 'add to portfolio' button, a new row is added putting in the details from the inputs to a new row (beginning in row 25). The problem I am having is that I cannot seem to get the output results (cells I12:I17) to be included as well. I have attached my excel file.

Variable Sheets, Variable Input

Mar 23, 2009

I run a machine that scans parts and is able to output the scans into Excel. Each part scanned creates a new sheet, and the number of sheets is variable as the number of parts scanned depends on the size of the lot. Also, since each part scanned is going to have a different number of features, the information being output on each sheet will be variable as well.

I am trying to figure out how to write a macro that will find the first feature, find the values for that feature I am looking for, output a max and min into a final sheet, and repeat for each feature, and for each sheet. I hope this is clear.

Filter Values Based On Master And Input List

Apr 11, 2013

I am trying to copy a spreadsheet i made in google docs in excel keeping the same functionality. Since the formulas are a bit different between the two, i can not simply copy the codes so i must start from scratch. The basics of my spreadsheet is that i have (3) columns: A master list, A filtered list, and an input list. I want the filtered list to change based on the values in the inputted list.

ColA = Input list
ColB = Filtered list
ColC = Master list

Items:
Orange
Red
Blue
Yellow
Green

ColA contains the colors i manually enter
ColB contains all the items in ColC that are NOT already listed in ColA (except for Red, i dont what that showing up)
ColC contains ALL the items above.

Two Examples of a functional worksheet:

ColA............ColB
Orange........Blue
Green..........Yellow
ColA........ColB
Orange....Blue
.............Yellow
.............Green

ColB is where the magic happens, it grows and shrinks based on the values in both the master list ColC and the input list ColA

Filter From Workbook Based On User Input Form

Aug 6, 2012

I need to filter data based on criteria based on user input form that is in another workbook. For example, I have a list of departments, I want to create a userform for the user to enter department number and then have excel filter only the data belonging to that department. The person will then update the department records and save the file.

Here is partial code I have been working on but having difficulties:

Dim FilterCriteria
Dim CurrentFileName As String
'Get the current file's name
CurrentFileName = ActiveWorkbook.Name 'how do I call another workbook?

Auto Filter Based On User Input With Multiple Choices

Apr 29, 2014

I have here an example of how I might extract data from a source workbook and paste it onto a template workbook, using autofilter to find the rows that are needed. It is currently set-up to take rows that match "AREA 1" or "AREA 2" in column A, along with a number of other criteria in other columns.

What I want to do is add into this macro, a way for the user to be able to choose the filter options will be used for column A of the source workbook. So if they want only "AREA 1", they can choose just that, or if they want "AREA 2", or perhaps both "AREA 1" & "AREA 2", or further additional options. They need to be able to specify just one, multiple, or all of the filter options with regards to column A of the source data.

In effect what I need is a user input box or form with a dropdown menu that will give the filter choices based on column A of the source data, and then for the code that copies the data across, to do so based on which choices the user makes in the filter menu of the input box.

I have uploaded examples of the source data workbook and the target template workbook. The macro exists within the template workbook.

[Code] .....

How it may be possible for the user to be able to specify, one, multiple, or all available filter options for column A of the source data, via a user input box or form.

Matching Up Fields With Variable Input

Oct 12, 2009

Example:
Order Number from VendorOrder Number from SupplierTracking Number from Supplier12345123451ZABCD13456134561ZBCDE134561ZCDEF14567145671ZDEFG1456714567

In these three orders, the first order nubmer has a 1-to-1 relationship with a single tracking number. In the second, there are two different tracking numbers associated with one number from column A. In the third, there is only one tracking number but three different lines of the same order number that need to be updated with it.

The question is, is there a way to line up data fields head to head even when there are variable inputs like this?

Input Daily Data - Variable Do Not Move In Formula

Jun 6, 2014

I have create an excel formula that I need to input data daily.

Every day, I need to insert a line and input my new data.

Below is my formula

=IF(V159="Skip","Go",IF(P160>0,IF(COUNTIF(C60:D154,">"&H159+3),"Good"),IF(COUNTIF(C60:D154,"<"&H159-3),"Good")))

The problem is that when I insert a line. Most of my variable will change according except C60:D154

As you can see below

V159 change to V160 = This is good

C60:D154 do not change accordingly. How can I make it change accordingly ?? Why it is not changing when I insert a line ?

=IF(V160="Skip","Go",IF(P161>0,IF(COUNTIF(C60:D154,">"&H160+3),"Good"),IF(COUNTIF(C60:D154,"<"&H160-3),"Good")))

Custom Function With Variable Number Of Input Parameters?

May 10, 2013

how to create a custom function with an unknown/changing number of input parameters?

Specifically, I need to create a function that will calculate the average of 1,2 or more ranges. I can't use the built-in average function as I then need to use the average in my function.

what I have so far is:

function points(current as range, previous as range)
if previous > current then final=1
if previous < current then final=0
if previous = current then final=2
points=final
end function

This works okay if I only only have 1 range of values. but in my worksheet I need to be able to enter =points(a1,c1:f1,g1) and have the function calculate the average of c1:f1,g1 and compare it to a1.

Pasting Variable In Filter In VBA Macros?

Sep 30, 2013

I am trying to write a macro where I have to select a name, copy it and search in a Pivot filter if a certain condition is met. I am stuck at a place where I am unable to paste the selected value as a variable.

Code:

For Each cell In .Range("I2:I" & .Range("I" & .Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row)
If cell.Value = True Then
Range("G" & N).Select
Selection.Copy
Range("A3").Select
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("QC POC").PivotFilters.Add _
Type:=xlCaptionContains, Value1:="selection.paste"

The portion which is in bold (Value1=) needs to contain my selection (which is actually a name)

Using Macro To Operate Filter On Variable Data?

Feb 28, 2014

I have a written a macro to populate a filter criteria with a comma separated list, but the filter fails to work as each individual item on the list needs to be surrounded by speech marks (") and I don't know how to do this.

This may not be an actual vba issue?

The list I am using is derived from =SUBSTITUTE(TRIM(BK9&" "&BK15&" "&BK21)," ",",") There are 120 different cells that this formula references that could be blank. The SUBSTITUTE TRIM functions allow me to just use the cells that have data in. But I can't seem to get the " symbols in there. (I've tried the TEXT function on the original cells, & this doesn't work.

Excel Data Using Cells Input To Filter Data And Producing Database Style Reports

Aug 6, 2013

Trying to use Excel Data List to create a database style report. IE. Originally blank sheet, which is only populated by data containing data matching "filters" input into cells ( say A1 & A2 )

I.e. A1 = Delivery week to be filtered by, and B1 Manufacturer Name

So if I type week "1" into A1 & Manufacturer "Microsoft" into A2, it will show a table only containing data Microsoft, Week 1, and associated data for those lines across the screen.

Week 1
Microsoft

PO number : Date Ordered: Address 1, 2 3 etc....

0011 01/01/13 Somewhere
0015 02/01/13 Anywhere
0213 05/01/13 Nowhere

I know this is much easier with a database, however my manager insists a database cannot be used, and it must be in a spreadsheet format !

Input Box To Create And Input Info Into A Formula Which Then Populates A Cell With A Value

Jul 24, 2014

I am trying to create a macro which gives me an input box. I need to enter 2 numbers into the input box. It would be as follows:

Input Box Msg 1 - "What is your labor cost?" (NUM1)
Input Box Msg 2 - "What is your productivity rate?" (NUM2)

Then I need the macro to take this info and enter it into a formula which changes according to the row which you are on. (I need the macro to work based on which ever cell I currently have selected). The formula would be this if I currently had a cell on row 10 selected:

=(NUM1*(NUM2*$H10))/$H10

So, if I currently had cell L10 selected, and I ran the macro and put 100 in for "NUM1" and 10 for "NUM2" and my sheet had 20 in cell H10, then the macro would enter the number 1,000 into cell L10. If I had L500 selected, then the macro would enter the final number into cell L500 based on what value H500 contained.

Whenever any text is entered in any of those cells I would like it to enter a text ( "X" ) in a cell which is specified by a cell in the spreadsheet (this cell will output which cell the macro should write the text in in this format "A:1" or "C:3"). How can I make the program act only in reaction to the user entering thier text, and also, how can I get the macro to read A:1 and enter the text into that specific cell? Any help would be so awesome, the book I have is really difficult to navigate.
